Abstract:

Tongue movements are essential for milk extraction during breastfeeding. It is therefore very important that professionals are able to reliably identify anatomical variations in the lingual frenulum that may impact infant feeding. Learn more about how to use the Lingual Frenulum Assessment Protocol for Infants. This tool allows assessment of changes in the lingual frenulum and limitation of tongue movements, which can compromise the functions of sucking, swallowing, chewing, breathing and speaking.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the importance of tongue movements for breastfeeding.
2. Describe the impact of limited tongue movements caused by ankyloglossia on sucking, swallowing, chewing, breathing and speaking.
3. Explain the step-by-step assessment of the lingual frenulum through the Lingual Frenulum Assessment Protocol for Infants.
